not suit senator lindsey graham of south carolina. >> i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect at this time. i believe such a decision is premature. >> joining us now is ari melber, my colleague and co-host of "the cycle," also a lawyer. ari, at least twice mr. graham said the administration's decision to reject enemy combatant status was, quoting him, premature. do you agree with that? >> i don't. it's weird for senator graham to say it. what is premature is try to assert there would be a direct or substantial link between the suspect and al qaeda. that is the legal requirement to take an american away from the civilian courts and treat them as an enemy combatant. i believe senator graham who has a long history on detention issues and was a lawyer, himself, i think he knows that. because he knows that, he knows he is premature to suggest this when no reliable source and nobody in the government -- >> certainly not yet. >> -- has met that standard. >> let's listen to what senator graham said was his reason for using

to handle suspect who is are american citizens. after his capture on friday, the obama administration announced its decision not to read the suspect his mir anda rights immediately upon arrest. the justice department invoked what is known as the public safety exception, one that enables them to get information relating to a possible imminent attack. immediately after tsarnaev was apprehended, the u.s. attorney in boston, carmen ortiz explained the choice not to read tsarnaev his miranda rights. >> there is a public safety exemption in cases of national security and potential charges involving acts of terrorism. so the government has the opportunity right now. >> the decision was not welcomed by everyone. in a statement the aclu called the move unamerican. explaining every criminal defendant has a right to be brought before a judge and to have access to counsel. we mustwaiveer from our tried and true. urging the administration to go further and declare the suspect an enemy combatant. a move that would strip tsarnaev of his constitutional rights. on fox news sunday, congressman peter ki

brings me here today is i have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as an enemy combatants. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to roll out and in the combat the status for the suspect at this time. i believe such a decision is premature. it is impossible for us to gather the evidence in just a few days to determine whether or not this individual should be held for questioning under the law of war. the decision by the administration to try this individual in federal court is a sound decision. it is the right decision. military commission trials are not available in cases like this. i wrote the 2009 military commission act. i have been the judge advocate for over 30 years, along with the help of many colleagues. we created a system for foreign terrorists. we purposely excluded american citizens. i have all the confidence in the world in article 3 courts at the federal level. they do a terrific job. i have confidence in our military commissions system. the decision by the administration not to proce

be? >> i will leave that up for president obama to make the decision. melissa: who do you think the market would like the most? come on, play the game with me. everyone is talking about janet yellin as a possibility. >> the odds are probably janet yellin. the market do have some concerns. again, a lot of her policy discussions are in line. governor janet yellin has become interesting speeches lately. it does appear that she is taking in the big picture in terms of monetary policy. melissa: how do you think the market will take them bernanke? how do you think history will treat him? >> i think history will treat him well. in terms of longer-term path of policy, it always depends on the institution itself. to what extent do they limit their policies? it will be treated positively. melissa: thank you for coming on. we appreciate it. >> sure. thank you. lori: the taxman may be coming for e-commerce. peter barnes has more for us. how close are we? peter: getting closer, lori. it has led to a titanic lobbying. and they ceo e-mailed his seller's asking them to fight this legislation. i

the ball. there is no question. you can't blame the obama administration for that. the other thing is i think the decision to prosecute this guy in boston is exactly right. the witnesses are there, the police who apprehended them are there. some people want to send them to gitmo, for goodness sakes. it is ridiculous. the enemy combatant thing, maybe i am wrong, but let's assume they fought that issue on a legal standpoint and it wasn't an enemy combatant. this is a clear cut case. let them prosecute the guy. he will get the death penalty or close and i don't know what that is. >> purgatory. >> yes, purgatory. i think this is the right decision to be made and everybody has done good job with the exception of the fbi. >> should the fbi be allowed to now go into mosques and wiretap and sur veil? >> no. >> why not? see i think this is is a great case for opening up that -- >> because if you have a sk month where there is -- mosque where there is significant suspicion, yes. >> how about in boston where the aman and that mosque which is about as strong a connection as you can get. >> one mosq

. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound to the throat but he is responding to some questions to a team the federal investigators in writing. any indication as to what he is saying or maybe perhaps just what they are trying to get out of him at

harm or potentially harm the federal case. >> the white house decision sets a pattern, since march 2009 the obama administration changed the way the war is prosecuted. ordering the pentagon who stop using the term global war on terror. instead calling it an overseas contingency operation. the president's current cia director raised eyebrows when he declared jihad is not necessary lay bad thing. >> as americans, we refuse to live in feemplet nor do we describe our enemy as jihadists or islamists because jihad is a holy struggle a legitimate tenet of islam. >> our president says we have a war on al qaeda not a war on terror. >> that's ridiculous. this is ideologically based war which ideology that unfortunately emerges from a religion. >> critics say it comes down to semantics whether the administration considers this a war, involving enemy combatants or a law enforcement challenge. bret? >> bret: jennifer griffin live at the pentagon. thank you. much more on all of this with the panel tonight, an expanded panel. president obama will attend a memorial service thursday for the victims of t
